Princess Merida's Scottish Oatmeal Rolls

Our Jersey City Party Characters team is so excited for the holidays! As you all already know, we are full speak ahead on rehearsals for the Jersey City Royal Holiday Breakfast! (Have you picked your gowns out yet?), but we have also decided to use this time to highlight fun Holiday recipies from around the world, inspired by our princesses. We joined baking and cooking groups from around the world on Facebook to find authentic recipies to share with you all. This recipe comes from JCPC owner, Iman's 3rd cousins that reside in Scotland.


- 2 cups Scottish oatmeal

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 tablespoon sugar

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1 tablespoon baking powder

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces

- 1 cup buttermilk


1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Scottish oatmeal, all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

4. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until just combined, forming a sticky dough.

5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together. Do not over-knead.

6. Pat or roll out the dough to about 1-inch thickness. Use a round cutter to cut out individual rolls and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.

8. Allow the rolls to cool slightly before serving.

This recipe is great to involve your children in creating, and it's a great and new addition for you Holiday party spreads.
